I heard ten bands in your section. I particularly liked the interpretation that the MD (Alan Widdop) gave. The solo cornet was superb in sound and style and the trombone section ‘sounded like a trombone section‘. Your performance was not helped by the air conditioning being turned up thus causing a few players to pick up their parts off the floor or playing holding the music. I did however have a score (the old one without the added percussion parts) and I would have put you 2nd out of the ten I heard. A point that the organisers might like to consider was that the lighting was very poor for every band in the 1st and 2nd sections. On the praise side, the selection of a decent test piece on the ear meant that for the Championship, 1st and 2nd section bands the audience numbers were increased significantly.
